Timber Bay

Brainerd / Crosby

Community Group

About Our Group

We understand that adolescence can be a turbulent time, so we offer a safe, fun home away from home that can help ease this transition in life. That home is Timber Bay Camp.

But, Timber Bay isn’t just about Camp. It is also about community. After the teens return from Camp, we help to build long-term, mentoring relationships with them and their friends right in their Brainerd Lakes hometown.

How to join: Reach out to: Dave Bennett, Brainerd/Crosby Area Director, if your student would like to join us.
